Trial to Ted Bundy was one of the most interesting trials for American public, it was the first and one of the most watched television trials. Ted Bundy was an American serial killer, kidnapper, and rapist who murdered several women and girls during the 1970’s and earlier. As it turned out, number of murdered girls was probably even higher than thirty, which murders after ten years of denying Ted finally confessed.
Ted was described as handsome and attractive man, that helped him to earn trust with his victims, he approached them in public faking an injury or acting as an authority figure, after that he would bring them to more private place and attack them. He was often returning to the places where he had previously murdered these women and performed sexual acts with their decomposing bodies. He did things like that multiple times, until their corpses fully decomposed. One more cruel and you could say sick thing he had done with his victims is that he had decapitated more than 12 of them.
First time he was arrested it was for kidnapping and attempted criminal assault, he was captured in Utah and after that he became suspect for numerous unsolved murders in more than seven USA states.
Second time he was charged with murder and succeeded in escaping twice after which he committed another three murders and multiple other assaults.
Third time he was arrested it was also the last time. For murders he committed and other assaults court led two separate trials. He was convicted with three death sentences. His life ended on an electric chair in Raiford Prison in Florida. Shortly before he was executed he confessed killing thirty women in more than 7 states.
He once said for himself that he was “the most cold-hearted son of a bitch you will ever meet”. Attorney Polly Nelson was one of his defense team of lawyers. She said that he was very definition of a heartless devil.
Ted Bundy’s case is unforgettable and monstrous and there is no man that hasn’t heard of him. His case was widespread by media and that is the reason he is now an example in every law textbook.
